AmazonThe world’s largest online retail and technology provider, through its web services arm AWS (Amazon Web Services), recently revealed plans to launch the Olympus Large Language Model (LLM).
According to Reuters, the upcoming LLM Olympus is expected to have a major impact on the technology giant’s online retail platform and will also enhance the capabilities of the Alexa voice assistant on devices such as the Amazon Echo, which leverages Amazon’s web services department.
Once launched, the program is expected to become one of the biggest competitors to OpenAI and Microsoft, offering LL.M. services based on artificial intelligence.
Amazon moves into artificial intelligence
Last year, Amazon delayed the launch of Titan, a large language model named after the Greek that the tech giant currently uses to deliver services to customers on its cloud platform.
Titan’s release was reportedly delayed due to poor performance compared to OpenAI’s ChatGPT.
The tech giant then worked hard to develop a new artificial intelligence (AI) paradigm unmatched by any other LL.M. After venturing into the field of artificial intelligence, Amazon is said to have invested millions of dollars in training an ambitious LL.M. on par with ChatGPT.
The report states that the Olympus model has nearly 2 trillion parameters, making it one of the largest LLM models developed. Even OpenAI’s latest version of ChatGPT, GPT-4, is said to have only 1 trillion parameters.
At present, technology giant Olympus has not revealed a specific date for completion and launch, but it is expected to be launched around December.
Olympus is expected to perform better than LLM and Titan currently offered by Amazon.
Development of LLM Olympus is led by Rohit Prasad, the former head of Alexa, the virtual assistant technology powered by Amazon.
In other recent developments surrounding online retail companies’ foray into artificial intelligence, Alibaba’s fintech arm Ant Group launched its latest artificial intelligence model, “Bailing.”
The Chinese tech giant previously launched Uniform Qianwen 2.0, an LLM that it said will compete with Open AI and other LLM developers.
